About Us


Arisen from the Analytical Instrumentation Department of the Heraeus technology group, develop and manufacture for more than 110 years instruments for elemental analysis in Hanau near Frankfurt. ELEMENTAR Analysensysteme is the worldwide leading German manufacturer of analytical instruments for non-metallic elements like carbon, nitrogen, sulfur, hydrogen, oxygen or chlorine in all organic and the majority of inorganic substances.

The basis of their success is rooted in continuous product innovation. Which is accomplished by applying both time proven as well as newly developed techniques in high temperature digestion of solids and liquids, with the most advanced methods of gas analysis. Elementar designers, assemblers, application chemists, service engineers and sales engineers are in close cooperation with customers for decades and guarantee highest quality of continuity and progress.

Sub Heading:

Elementar are specialists
Elementar are specialists of instruments for CHNOS elemental analysis, Nitrogen/Protein analysis by Dumas combustion method and TOC / TNb analysis for micro and macro samples. Special digestion units and accessories complement the area of non metallic analysis. Elementar’ main application fields cover a wide range from fundamental research to highly specialized quality control.
In 2008, a major enhancement of their competence
In 2008, a major enhancement of their competence resulted from the incorporation of the instrument line for stable isotope analysis of organic elements like CHNS and O. Their daughter company Isoprime Ltd. in Manchester continuously develops the largest tradition in manufacturing IRMS analyzers based on VG/Micromass technology.
Their Important application fields are:
  • Chemical laboratory analysis of the elements CHNS and Cl in micro and macro samples in research as well as in chemical and pharmaceutical industry.
  • Agrarian analysis for the determination of the element compounds of soil and plant samples or in food.
  • Water and environmental analysis by measuring sum parameters like TOC, TNb, etc. for the overall impairment to water and soil. Measurement of carbon circulation or climate indicators.
  • Analysis of fuels for the evaluation of the calorific value and the environmental characteristics of coal, biomass or solid waste.
  • Special analyzers for isotope analysis in geochemical and agrochemical research and the analysis of origin of food as well as the analysis of further hetero atoms or trace analysis in mineral oil.
  • Accessories and consumables add to our instrument line in respect to complete solutions for our users.
